We’re adding a pin for every area where parents, residents, a community organisation or the council (and ideally, all of them together) are starting to change things for children through play streets and related ideas. The movement is growing! See what’s happening near you and tell us if there’s anything to add. If you’re interested in starting a play street or in any other action to support children playing out, do get in touch – we can help.
There has been a lot of street play activity in three districts of West Sussex; Adur and Worthing where 15 or so streets have held playing out sessions, Mid Sussex and Chichester.
